sync headers to download with server


when I select a group to enter, I get
prompted for how many headers,

is this the number of headers on the server?

how can I get only new headers from the time
I used it last?

I am a previous Thunderbird/pan user who switched
to slrn mainly for memory footprint issues,
I only have 993MB RAM and am using Ubuntu

Thunderbird/pan seemed to "sync" the headers,
is there a way to do this with slrn?

Conditional From?

Hi,

is it possible to make slrn to set different From header for 
different newsgroups? I generally use the same address as here, 
but I would need to use our company address for the company 
newsgroups. Is it possible to persuade slrn to do The Right 
Thing?

Thank you,

Matěj

slrn/nano wrapping problems still

I want line wrap at 74 for my reads and posts
I don't want word wrap unless it is from something
that is copy/pasted, which seems to be no problem

I have softwrap set in my ~/.nanorc
set softwrap
and it looks fine in nano editing, everything looks
fine in editing

I have nano set as my default editor in my ~/.slrnrc
set editor_command "nano -r 74"
according to the nano docs, this is supposed to
hard wrap at 74 columns

again, when I edit, everything is okay

when I send I get an error
from slrn that a line is not wrapped under 80
and I have to force send

when I then read the post in slrn it is not wrapped

if I copy/paste something word wrapped already, it makes
it through the whole line process fine

I don't want word wrap except for what I copy/paste

I have been reading docs and googling for 2 days, i tried vim,
gedit,emacs, no difference

slrn/vim line/word wrap configuration

I have slrn/vim working to wrap lines when I type them

I have to force send in slrn because it says the line is more than 80 chars
when I read I have to press W to wrap and a space is in front of where
W wraps it

how can I get rid of the space

this is what is in my ~/.slrnrc

set editor_command "vim '+set tw=80' +%d '%s'

copy/paste wraps okay, and reads okay

KOI8-R in slrn

Hello!

I have to use version of slrn that does not support 'charset' setting.
The version is not new, so it does not support
set_utf8_conversion_table function. As result, when I try to read news
in Russian, I get garbage on the screen. As far as I can see, slrn
simply treats KOI8-R text as Latin1 and converts it to UTF-8.

In the article view I was able to correct things. My macro gets the
raw text of the article, then converts KOI8-R to UTF-8 and then
replaces article. Works perfectly.

Now I would like to fix subject lines displayed in the "threads" view.
I didn't find any functions that could be used for fixing encodings in
the Subject of the article. Did I miss them, or they really don't
exist?

Best regards
Andrei Voropaev

Getting quote regular expressions from ignore_quotes via S-Lang?

How does one get the regular expression(s) used with ignore_quotes in an 
S-Lang slrn macro?

I can't use get_variable_value() because that function only works with 
slrn variables that are set with "set".

I'd like to read these strings for a macro I'm writing where I'd like to 
avoid giving the regular expressions more than once -- once with 
ignore_quotes and another time for the macro to use.

Thanks.

has_parent() oddity

has_parent() is a bit confusing to me. If one looks at the following two 
articles in news.software.readers with slrn v1.0.1:

<2424ed2d74d5139e22d17f1a40a5f1b0 <at> hoi-polloi.org>
<2424ed2d74d5139e22d17f1a40a5f1b0 <at> msgid.frell.theremailer.net>

they get threaded together. Neither article has a References: header.

Yet has_parent() returns 0 for the former article and has_parent() 
returns 1 for the latter article.

call("get_parent_header") on the latter article raises an exception -- 
"Article has no parent reference." -- which makes sense from the lack of 
a References: header but it remains unobvious why has_parent() ought to 
return 1 for 
<2424ed2d74d5139e22d17f1a40a5f1b0 <at> msgid.frell.theremailer.net> (I'm 
talking about the intention behind has_parent() not necessarily its 
current implementation).

It seems to me that if has_parent() returns non-zero, one ought to be 
able to identify the article that is that article's parent, even if that 
article is not present on the server.

I'm not sure if I'm seeing a bug in the has_parent() implementation, a 
bug in the has_parent() documentation (maybe more explanation about how 
has_parent() can return 1 even if the parent is due to slrn grouping 
articles into threads by sorting?), or if I'm misunderstanding something 
about proper use of has_parent().
